For my sociology final project I have decided to do a presentation on how private music lessons are influenced by the race and culture of the student. How do you, as a teacher, find teaching a young Asian student, or an adult-beginner from say, Germany, or a Latino child? It could be any combination, or any race.
A good starting point might be how close to a student do you stand? As an American who values my space, I don't like it when teachers intrude on it, and I'm uncomfortable.
Any thoughts at all would be appreciated, as I have to put this into a presentation.
